Microphones are electroacoustic devices that produce an electrical signal in response to an acoustic pressure stimulus and have been widespread in acoustic applications for decades. This paper is a summary of the special session “Microphones: Design, Development, and Characterization” that was held at the 184th meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in Chicago, IL. The session consisted of 17 abstracts and brought together a large number of microphone designers, researchers, and practitioners. The presentations in the session covered a variety of aspects of microphone design, characterization, and application.
